Do you really need to keep your anti-virus software up to date? I tested that theory for the past year and it looks like the answer is yes. Yes, you really should. My home laptop stopped working over the weekend and I had to take it in to some pros (geeks) since Windows wouldn't even start in safe mode. They found 21 viruses infecting it and had to do a completely new Windows re-install and recover what they could from my hard drive. Oh well, live and learn. On the upside, after the $161 repair and new windows install, the thing runs like a completely new machine.
